Stuart Florida Courage Challenge Mud Run 2014 is scheduled for September 27, 2014 at Halpatiokee Park, 8303 Lost River Road, Stuart.  There have been two mud run events in the past and one event planned for the future.  Enjoy music, DJ, food vendors, and rinse stations for the post party ceremony excitement.

You may ask what the allure of a mud run is.  A mud run is a mix of physical military style exertion with a mix of whimsical fun.  It is perfect for anyone who is looking to try something, but has been avoiding it for years.  It is also a great place to do something fun, for a good cause, because you are not getting any younger, and you are still a kid at heart!

Fishing is outstanding on Florida beaches. With fall season here, the mullet run is full of energy on the Atlantic coast and in very large numbers, baitfish plunge in and out of the oceans edge repetitively drawing the game fish’s attention, who are just hunting for another easy solid meal. Surf fishing in Broward County and other nearby counties is a perfect location since it is remote enough south that you are able to fish at any time of the year, with the best action being fall season.

With over a dozen of beaches to choose from, Broward County offers public beaches that allow fishing off the shoreline and it’s a normal sight to see fisherman with their poles and nets out, catching most inshore & offshore fish such as, snook, cobia, snapper, redfish,

Rolling Stone magazine described the new album as “maximum rock and roll” and “a decisive return to the concise Sixties-rock classicism of his first great New Wave era albums.”  The former North Florida boy, (he has lived in California for the last 40 years) admitted in a cheerful gritty drawl “I’m not as angry as people think.” He smiled and said “I’m in the probably in the most pleasant period of my life.”  The reason may be the recently released album may be

9.19.14 Fishing Report

The typical South Florida weather will take part this weekend, and the marine forecast is looking quite nice; as summer time is drifting away from us and slowly fall weather patterns are strolling in, be sure to get out on the water and hook some fish!

OFFSHORE-
Uneven and light choppy seas are impeccable for hooking up a sailfish and dolphin, which there is plenty of both to catch over the weekend.

Some of the pictures are still in existence; Salhaven Village’s official opening was in December of 1956.  According to the Time Magazine article, date December 17, 1956 “a band played and an American Legion color guard attended the flag-raising event held in the newly paved Betsey Boss Plaza.”  The Betsy Ross Plaza does not exist anymore, and Jonathan’s Landing and Jupiter Medical Center stand in its place.

The 634-acre concept was unique.  Residents of this tropical community would be union retirees living on union pensions and social security.  The planned community would have an outpatient clinic and a convalescence building (located where Jupiter Medical Center is currently located).  Named after Sal B. Hoffman, the President of the Upholsters
